The Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society just debuted a new permanent exhibit that focuses on the history of Cleveland.
Cleveland Starts Here takes visitors through Cleveland’s past, from agriculture to industry…
…from the sixth city to the mistake by the lake (and back again).
There are bold, eye-catching pieces in the exhibit, like this Delorean…
…the old Chief Wahoo sign from Municipal Stadium…
…and this model of the Terminal Tower.
There are also interactive elements incorporating elements of Cleveland’s past to peek through, spin, and open that engage even the youngest visitors.
The exhibit also features a film about Cleveland, as well as a detailed historical timeline of Cleveland’s past.
The exhibit, housed in the Reinberger Auditorium, is a new focal point for the Cleveland History Center, as well as the only place in the city to get such a sweeping, beautiful, and comprehensive view of Cleveland’s history.
Our city has so much to be proud of and to look forward to and the new Cleveland Starts Here exhibit brings that all together. It’s something every Clevelander should experience!
